boxnationKeys, who now presents a morning radio show with Andy Gray on talkSPORT, will launch the channel with live coverage of the Commonwealth Super-Featherweight showdown between Liam Walsh and Paul Appleby from York Hall, East London.

Keys said: “The circumstances of my departure from Sky after twenty successful years has been well documented. I am very happy and thoroughly enjoying working with Talksport and my old mate Andy Gray but the launch of BoxNation is very exciting and I am thrilled to be part of it. It’s fantastic news for sports fans throughout the country.”

Richard will join fellow presenters Jim Rosenthal, Paul Dempsey, Steve Bunce and John Rawling.
